Minero – Charleston

March 30, 2015

A week ago I visited Charleston for a couple of days for a work retreat, where we spent the mornings plotting our success in future years. In the afternoons we enjoyed the scenery, food, and beverages (aka team building). We had some excellent meals and drinks at Edmund’s Oast, Rutledge Cab Company, Husk, FIG, and Leon’s Oyster Shop. I put all my […]

Bacon Brothers

March 27, 2015

Last year I briefly posted about it, but my favorite restaurant as of late in Greenville SC (I’m there 2-3 days a week) is Bacon Brothers Public House, led in the kitchen by chef Anthony Gray, formerly of Southern Art in Atlanta. When I first heard the name of the restaurant a few years ago, I was a […]

Tacos La Villa

March 24, 2015

Tacos La Villa in Smyrna. Buford Highway (el rey, taco veloz, etc) is my go-to for this style of simple tacos. But on this side of town, Tacos La Villa is the best option I’ve tried. Many others seems to agree, it was super crowded for lunch. $5.99 for three tacos, rice, beans. Meats were above […]

Tasty China is Still Here

March 23, 2015

The Atlanta Sichuan news has been dominated by the closing of Gu’s, which I found pretty odd but is explained a little better a few days after the sudden closure. I hope they do well at Krog, though the dumplings and noodles, which make-up the majority of the stall’s menu, are not my favorite items to […]

People sleep on Fritti, the longstanding Neapolitan pizzeria in the Inman Park area, which has been making really nice pies for a loooong time. I forget about it too, and I shouldn’t. It’s the sort of neighborhood place I would visit frequently if I lived nearby, though I’ve been hearing good things about Old Fourth […]

Here are a a few shots and thoughts from a recent pilgrimage to Krog Street Market, this time visiting Superica, the latest in mega-restauranteur and fancy lightbulb enthusiast Ford Fry’s collection. The fourth full-service restaurant surrounding the bustling food hall, Superica is the sister restaurant of Avalon’s The El Felix, both a Tex-Mex homage to the Houston and Austin styles of Mr. […]

Everybody Loves Ramen @ Empire State South

March 2, 2015

In case you missed it, Empire State South has a ramen pop-up series going every Sunday evening from 6-8PM at the bar only, brought to you by chef Vas Sanchez. The ramen is changing every week – my one sampling being a delectable, sleep-inducing bowl of tonkotsu, which appears below with a strange frothiness (the chef was Vitamixing them to order, I presume […]

Sichuan Beef

February 26, 2015

In my recent post about Gu’s I complained of the missing “kick my ass” element as compared to the old days of Peter Cheng. THIS is how it’s done. Blogger emeritus Rowdy cooked up this beef dish the other night for us. It is over the top in a way, but fantastic. The Sichuan peppercorns […]
